I think this place is a" must " if you are eating in Leipzig- a vast cellar which has been there for centuries and deserves to be for centuries to come. A huge bustling place with arched vaults.Goethe has Mephistopheles bewitching students in the place. We ate unscathed. Best to book- it is very busy and ,despite what guide books... More

I don't understand the occasional poor review of Auerbachs Keller. It's a wonderful space. A ‘must see’ in every guide book. And of course Goethe used it as a location in his writing. So the place could be forgiven for simply resting on its laurels. Yet night after night (we ate on two successive evenings) it's packed not with bug-eyed... More

It is quite a special place with the Faustian theme in the centre of Leipzig. Good beer, nice food, although quite hectic and large.

This venue is not what you expect on stairs leading down from a modern shopping centre. The dining hall is vast and obviously very popular and decorated with scenes from Fausts work. The menu is a celebration of Saxony (and English menus are available with some quirky translations). There is a lot to choose from and a lot of it... More

We had a great meal here (again). As before they made our little dog very welcome - brought him a bowl of water when they brought us a menu. I couldn't choose between the cold starters so selected the "Auswahl" option - great choice. My wife had the Leipziger soup which was great - as were the main courses. really... More

If you like typical German food then this is a great place to visit. Of course it is not to everyone's taste, but I was very happy with wild boar in a mushroom sauce with potato dumplings, not quite so to my wife's taste I have to say. The restaurant is based in a wonderful Keller and the food is... More

We had the special, wild boar, dumplings and purple cabbage. The meat was as over cooked, the dumplings were flavourless and the cabbage was over cooked and Muskie. We didn't like any of it, and left more than half the food. After dinner the Waiter asked if we liked it, and we said no, which was obvious because we left... More

This is a very popular restaurant so you need to reserve in advance (especially as part of the cellar is being renovated as of Aug 2016). The vaulted ceiling is nice, tables are reasonably spaced. Formally dressed waiting staff. The menus are available in English (but not idiomatic translations from German - almost looks as if it's been done by... More
